Don't Salt My Game | With Laura Thomas, PhD

Join Registered Nutritionist Laura Thomas, PhD for conversations with game changers. Laura talks to people in wellness, foodies, bloggers, entrepreneurs from cool brands, creatives, nutritionists, doctors, body positivity people, mindfulness experts, and anyone else who is shaking up the wellness world, to find out how they stay on top of their game – and to help you do you, but better. It’s not all handstands and courgetti though - she and her guests aren’t afraid to dig deep into the darker side of wellness and WILL call BS on weird, faddy trends, that don’t have any legitimacy or scientific merit. Fresh pods every Friday. #dontsaltmygame

Here's a little bonus ep to tide you over until the next main episode. It's a excerpt from my interview with Liz Riley where we go deep on figuring out who you are and, asking what you want from life, and thinking about how you want to be remembered and why periods of alone time are so important for figuring that stuff out. This is something I've experienced and I think that's why it really resonated with me. I also thin it's relevant to the whole wellness world as so much of our identities get tied up with being the 'healthy one', but what's left when we strip that all away? Expect some serious real talk, and fodder for thought. Some of the sound is a little weird in places but stick with it, it's all good.

TRIGGER WARNING: This episode may not be suitable for people with active eating disorders or those who are vulnerable.

Buckle up kids because this is a really emotional episode. Laura Dennison and Eve Simmons, the brilliant geniuses behind Not Plant Based (a website for troubled eaters) are sharing the stories of their eating disorders. Both have completely different perspectives and share the own stories of struggle and recovery. We also talk about some of the problems with social media and the wellness industry. Plus where you should turn for help. I couldn't be more grateful to Laura and Eve for being so open and honest about this difficult subject. If you suspect you or someone you know is suffering from an eating disorder, please go to laurathomasphd.co.uk or notplantbased.com for further help and resources.

She's back! Friend of the show Pixie Turner aka Plant Based Pixie is here to tell us about the paper she recently published on the relationship between social media use (specifically Instagram) and orthorexic tendencies. Learn what orthorexia is, how it relates to other eating disorders, the connection to social media, and why it's so tricky to treat and diagnose. We also play a round of SBS, have a LOT to say about scope of practice for professionals (nutrition & otherwise), and generally set the world to rights.
